Presenting This Blue Dress 2017 Fall Bucket Lists

Happy Fall! This Blue Dress has a thing for Bucket Lists (we have a whole category dedicated to them!), so we wanted to share our Fall 2017 Bucket List with all of you! We each listed 5 things that first came to mind, so there were some repeats–we’re pretty excited for hot chocolate season if you can’t tell 🙂 And of course we have some traditional favorites on here–if you don’t roast hot dogs and carve pumpkins, is it still Fall? So without further ado…

Maegan’s List

Joey and Maegan carve a pumpkin with three faces to announce their pregnancy that fall.

We announced our first pregnancy with our jack-o-lantern before pregnancy announcements were a cool Pinterest thing.

Burn some hot dogs over a fire. How do you like your hot dogs?

We had a few awesome bonfires this season!

Get a specialty cocoa from Starbucks, like the snickerdoodle flavor.

The nearest Starbucks didn’t have Snickerdoodle. My favorite cocoa (besides my mother-in-law’s delicous homemade mix!) has actually been McDonald’s this year.

Recreate a date. Joey and I fell in love and got engaged in the fall.

Sadly no dates, but we’ve had some nice fall walks.

Make casserole in a pumpkin. We don’t do this every year for dinner Halloween night, but I love it when we do! We also have a funny, random tradition of going on a Taco Bell run when all the Crouch family trick or treats together.

I need to do this earlier next year! I waited until after Halloween, and then there weren’t any good pumpkins around here. 

Family trick or treat dinner at Taco Bell

Aren’t they the cutest?

Memorize some Autumn poems and make a leaf book. I’m a homeschool Mom (for 3rd grade, 1st and Pre-K and want to do more seasonal activities!).

We read some beautiful Autumn poems and collected pretty leaves, but the memorizing and book will have to wait until next year.
